DISHONESTY
[ Also see Artifice Baseness Bribery Cheating Corruption Crime Deceit Dissimulation Equivocation Exaggeration Falsehood Fraud Honesty Hypocrisy Insincerity Integrity Knavery Liars Lying Perjury Plagiarism Pretension Quackery Theft Wickedness Wrong ]

The gains of the wicked bring short-lived pleasure, but afterwards long-continued grief.
      - Antiphanes of Macedonia

Dishonesty is so grasping it would deceive God Himself, were it possible.
      - George Bancroft

If you attempt to beat a man down and to get his goods for less than a fair price, you are attempting to commit burglary, as much as though you broke into his shop to take the things without paying for them. There is cheating on both sides of the counter and generally less behind it than before it.
      - Henry Ward Beecher

Dishonesty is a forsaking of permanent for temporary advantages.
      - Christian Nestell Bovee

What is dishonorably got, is dishonorably squandered.
  [Lat., Male parta, male dilabuntur.]
      - Cicero (Marcus Tullius Cicero) (often called "Tully" for short),
        Philippicoe (II, 27)

I have known a vast quantity of nonsense talked about bad men not looking you in the face. Don't trust that conventional idea. Dishonesty will stare honesty out of countenance any day in the week, if there is anything to be got by it.
      - Charles Dickens

Ill-gotten wealth is never stable.
      - Euripides

It is a trick among the dishonest to offer sacrifices that are not needed, or not possible, to avoid making those that are required.
      - Ivan Goncharov

That which is won ill, will never wear well, for there is a curse attends it, which will waste it; and the same corrupt dispositions which incline men to the sinful ways of getting, will incline them to the like sinful ways of spending.
      - Matthew (Mathew) Henry

Dishonor waits on perfidy. A man should blush to think a falsehood; it is the crime of cowards.
      - Samuel Johnson (a/k/a Dr. Johnson) ("The Great Cham of Literature")

It is hard to say which of the two we ought most to lament,--the unhappy man who sinks under the sense of his dishonor, or him who survives it.
      - Junius (pseudonym, possibly of Sir Philip Francis)

Dishonest men conceal their faults from themselves as well as others; honest men know and confess them.
      - Francois Duc de la Rochefoucauld

Who purposely cheats his friend, would cheat his God.
      - Johann Kaspar Lavater (John Caspar Lavater)
